CANTO: Wolves in the Throne Room, Deathwhite, Zeal & Ardor, and More

Another day, another vinyl pre-order locked in.

  • Deathwhite are already back in the studio, recording their third full-length, and following up the success of 2020’s Grave Image. This album will be titled Grey Everlasting, and there are plenty details to come… hopefully sooner rather than later.
  • And then we have a new Zeal & Ardor video to share for “Run”. It’s unsettling. It’s awesome. It’s exactly what we both hope for and expect. Scoop up the track here, and watch the video here.
  • A couple doom veterans will be hitting the road together this coming July and August. The Obsessed and The Skull announced a co-headlining tour through the U.S., starting with a July 29th date in Cleveland. Tickets are on sale now… somewhere.
  • And we’ll close with probably he biggest news of the day. Wolves in the Throne Room have announced a new album, Primordial Arcana, which is set for an August 20th release through Relapse Records. Pre-orders are available here (among other places), and a video for the new track “Mountain Magick” is available below. It’s incredible.

CANTO: King Woman, Red Fang, Burning Witches, and More

Today was a little more tame, which is all I can ask for.

CANTO: Obsidious, Yautja, Inhuman Condition, and More

It appears I will be making my return to California this year. Twice.

  • Entheos has signed a worldwide deal with Metal Blade Records, which is awesome for them. It doesn’t look like we’re getting the debut release through that label until sometime next year, but for now check out this new teaser video.
  • In advance of the release of The Lurch this coming Friday, Yautja shared a new video for “The Weight”. Give it a watch at this location, and be sure to scoop up their new album at the end of the week, which is out through Relapse Records.
  • Inhuman Condition dropped a new (age-restricted) video for “Killing Pace”, which I suggest you take a few minutes to watch here. In case you weren’t aware (side note: I wasn’t) Rat°God is out on June 4th through Listenable Insanity Records.
  • Obsidious have signed on with Season of Mist, one of my personal favorite labels, with ambitions of releasing their debut with them sometime early next year. Better yet, however, they also released a new track titled “Iconic”, which you can check out directly below.

CANTO: Lantlos, Amenra, Silver Lake, and More

The announcements today are… substantial.

  • Unreqvited are releasing a new album on August 13th through Prophecy Productions titled Beautiful Ghosts, which is basically the most Unreqvited album name ever. You can pre-order it here, and check out the first single off that album, “Autumn & Everley”, right here.
  • Ok, so it was a big day for Prophecy, with Lantlos also making an album announcement. Wildhund will be out on July 30th, so we won’t need to wait quite as long for that one. And of course, these announcements usually come with new tunes, so here’s the impressive new video for “Lake Fantasy”.
  • Remember that epic tour scheduled for last year that featured the likes of Megadeth, In Flames, Lamb of God, and Trivium? Well, those dates have been rescheduled to this August and September. This tour would be a monstrous way to welcome concerts back in 2021, so fingers crossed it all works out. Tickets go on sale Friday.
  • The debut album from Silver Lake (Esa Holopainen), drops on May 28th through Nuclear Blast. Check out the second trailer for that album here, which includes discussion about the guest appearances on the self-titled debut. Trust me, it’s worth the five minutes of your time.
  • Lastly, and definitely most importantly (to me), is the news from Amenra. Their next full-length, De Doorn, is set for a June 25th release through Relapse Records. Pre-order it here, but just a heads up that a lot of the good stuff is sold out already (I helped that cause). This also came with a new track and video, “De Evenmens”. Needless to say, it is incredible on every front. Enjoy.
